According to the National Arbor Day Foundation Web site, the amount of time American
children aged 6-8 spent playing outdoors decreased by four hours per week between 1981 and 1997. Unfortunately, the wonders of nature now place second to computers and electronic game stations.
The foundation’s Kids Explore Club helps to “reintroduce” elementary school-aged children to the great outdoors, where they can be active, learn, create important connections with nature and, of course, have fun.
Membership in Kids Explore Club includes a magic tree ring magnifier, explorer’s portfolio and 10 adventures “designed to move the kids in your life from the television to the back door.”
Every aspect of the club encourages participation and learning — and can only be enhanced during RV travels. For more information, call (888) 448-7337, or go to arborday.org.
